hiba gingerbread

By Hiba Giacoletto, Healthwise

This is a healthier recipe for gingerbread that is grain-free and vegan. The hardest part is buying the chestnut flour. After that, it comes together in just a few minutes and will make your home smell amazing!

Gingerbread

  • 125g chestnut flour  – you can buy chestnut flour in any organic store
  • 2 tsp gingerbread spice blend (see below for recipe or you can buy a ready-made mix)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3 tbsp almond butter (made only of ground almonds)
  • 1 tbsp molasses
  • 300 ml water
  • zest of 1 organic orange (optional)

German Gingerbread Spice Blend (Lebkuchengewürz)

This makes a bigger quantity that you can store in a jar and add to anything from soups to smoothies to yoghurt. Simply combine the spices in the quantities below.

  • 3 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp ground allspice
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/4 tsp ground cardamom
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground anise
  • 1/4 tsp ground star anise

Method

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

Mix all the dry ingredients then add the wet ingredients and mix really well so there are no lumps. Pour into 2 silicone cake loaf pans. If you are using silicone, you don’t need to grease your pan but if you are using tin or glass you do. The secret is to not fill the cake loaf beyond about 1 cm of batter so that it doesn’t fall apart.

Place in the oven for about 35-40 minutes. Your gingerbread is ready when the top starts cracking. Take it out and place to cool on a wire rack before cutting.
